Record of Change
We will record various changes that occur as we proceed with this project. We will also create a video and release it to reflect on and share our achievements.
We will produce booklets to introduce the current situation and problems of basic education in Japan and Korea based on the difference between the educational systems. The brochure will be published in Japanese and Korean.
We will translate and share excellent learning/teaching materials for basic education in Japan and Korea, adding commentaries on the perspectives and methods for the development of the materials.
Basic Education in Asia
We aim to establish “Asia Basic Education Network Conference” (tentative name) to continue the exchange between the project members even after the project has been completed.
Four exchange programs are scheduled with the aim of exchanging practical knowledge and experience between Japan and Korea. The programs include meetings and class observations.
The 1st Meeting
The first program was held in Osaka, Japan from December 1 through 3 in 2017. We had a study session to learn about the Act on Securement of Educational Opportunities Equivalent to Formal Education and visited evening middle schools in Osaka.
The 2nd Meeting
The second program will be held in Korea around the middle of September 2018 in conjunction with the Month of Learning Festival. The program includes literacy class observation.
The 3rd Meeting
We are planning to hold a workshop for "Joint Declaration on Basic Education in Japan and Korea " (tentative) in spring 2019 in Japan. Thirty participants including students are scheduled to attend the workshop from Korea.
The 4th Meeting
We will hold an international symposium in Korea and release “Japan and Korea Joint Declaration on Basic Education” (tentative). We will review and conclude the project and discuss the future of basic education and our research in Japan, Korea and other Asian countries.
